      http://www.stompinggroundfilm.com A Feature Film about Love & Bigfoot Hunting Starring JOHN BOBEK, TARAH DESPAIN, JERAMY BLACKFORD, JUSTIN GIDDINGS & THERESA TILLY Produced by BRAD LAVERY & MIKE DE TRANA Written by DAN RIESSER & ANDREW GENSER Directed by DAN RIESSER LOGLINE: Ben & Annie are a young couple on a weekend trip in the American south who, after meeting a charming old friend, embark on an impromptu “Bigfoot hunt” that threatens both their relationship and their lives. BRIEF SYNOPSIS: Ben & Annie are a couple living in Chicago on a weekend trip to Annie's small North Carolina hometown. At the local bar they run into Paul, an old friend of Annie's, and Ben learns something he never knew about his girlfriend: She believes in Bigfoot. In fact, she and her friends used to "hunt" for the creature when they were kids. Before Ben knows it, he's off on an impromptu Squatchin' trip deep in the Carolina backwoods. Amidst the Squatch calls, campfire stories and beers, Ben quickly realizes that Paul may have an ulterior motive in bringing Annie to the woods. And something else out here seems to be after her as well. Everyone but Ben thinks its Bigfoot. But it can't be, can it? After all, Bigfoot isn't real... Stomping Ground is a micro budget comedic drama / horror hybrid feature film by first time feature director Dan Riesser.

        Small town punk rockers THE BRAIN DEADS have their first out of town gig. But there are a few problems: The venue is deserted, the promoter is a creep, their bass player has gone missing, and the only kids in the audience appear to be bloodthirsty monsters from hell. It's gonna take a lot more than a few power chords and teenage angst to survive this night. NIGHT OF THE PUNKS is a love letter to 1980's splatterpunk cinema, echoing classics like "The Return of the Living Dead," "The Evil Dead" and "Night of the Demons."
